No way, Tyler, you're not helping.
Since when did your sense of humour get surgically removed?
Since when was secretly filming someone funny?
The words comedy and gold come to mind.
Could you be any more annoying?
I'm doing the blog by myself. Got it?
-What will I do, then?
-Go and annoy someone else.
I'd rather annoy you.
Go away, Tyler!
Welcome to The Dumping Ground.
It's not as bad as it sounds.
If you're watching this, you're one of us now.
Relax. You're going to love it here.
You'll meet some amazing new friends.
Get to try exciting new food.
We promise it's an experience you'll never forget.
But remember, this is a place where random chaos can strike at any time.
So you have to be prepared...
For pretty much anything.
And that's why we made this video blog.
We've been through all this so you don't have to.
This time on The Dumping Ground Survival Files - second chances.
When to give people the benefit of the doubt
and the chance to put right stuff they've done wrong.
Be careful, though, appearances can be deceptive...
Especially in this place.
Be honest, we have all been there.
You've done something wrong and you want to put it right,
but you can't do that unless someone will let you.
And that is what this blog is all about -
giving people second chances.
Although, sometimes it is hard to forgive and forget.
How hard can it be? I'm here right now. Go.
Tyler, but it is not a second chance you are asking for,
it is a millionth.
Oh, come on, please! I'll do everything you say.
This blog will be boring anyway with just you doing it.
Is that supposed to persuade me?
# One more chance That's all I ask of you. #
You want to make a good impression.
But sometimes, no matter how hard you try,
that doesn't work out and people get the wrong idea about you.
Because sometimes people are way too quick to judge. Like...
Let me think of an example. I know, you, Jody!
I am so not judgmental. Although, plenty of people here are.
Let's find one of them and interview them for the blog.
I don't think I am letting you anywhere near the camera, lamebrain.
Let's start with one of the nicest people here.
She's kind, she's generous.
But sometimes she can make her mind up about people way too quickly.
Carmen, what is it that makes...some people...judge
others by appearances, do you think?
Well, you know me, Jody, always trying to see the best in everyone.
It's not always good to judge people too quickly.
-So you never judge people? OK(!)
-What is that supposed to mean?
Well, you didn't exactly go out of your way not to judge me. Did you?
Jody has had a rough time. She needs to share with someone who is kind.
And as we all know, Carmen, you are the best man for the job.
Did you really think I would fall for that?
Hoped so, cos it is all I've got. You are still sharing with Jody.
She has so much stuff! It's like a shop in here.
Put them back, Jody,
you can't borrow Carmen's things without asking first.
She can't borrow them at all.
-I don't want a roommate, especially one who stinks.
You didn't exactly go out of your way to create a good
impression, did you?
Anyway, that is just one example.
-I'd like to see you come up with any more.
'Talk about history repeating itself.'
Look, Kazima, I know that you've been living on the streets,
and I really have been trying to make allowances for you, but...
You are so kind.
Thank you so much.
-I just don't think this room-share is working out.
Maybe you should move out.
Is this another one of your jokes?
Because it is really not funny.
Wait, that's not fair.
There have been loads of times when it has been me giving a chance
when everyone else has decided they don't like them.
-OK, name one.
What, that stuck up princess?
My point exactly.
-Four, that is a sign.
-It is a shoe size.
-It is destiny.
-Right, I'm going to try them on.
-OK, as long as you hurry up.
They totally match your outfit.
-No, seriously, you have to buy a pair.
Oh, I already have a pair.
I was just trying to convince my friend here to get some.
I think I'll pass.
-Do you mind if I...?
-No, no, not at all.
-What are you like?
-What do you mean?
"Oh, I have just got to try to convince my friend to get some."
-I don't know what you're talking about.
It's not like we're ever going to see her again,
-No, you've got a point.
Get off me!
-Give it back!
-Get away from her!
Are you all right?
-Are you two sisters?
But you said you lived together.
Yeah, we do. We live in a care home.
-You're not freaked out, are you?
-Why would I be?
-Because it is not a dump or anything.
-I'm sure it isn't.
If you don't want to come back, it's fine, I totally understand.
No, I'd like to.
I totally didn't judge her when others did.
-Is she really a princess?
-No! Stupid name.
She has got Carmen saying ciao instead of bye.
-I hate her already.
-So there you go.
I was the open-minded one and nobody else would give her a chance.
But that is because she was a posh princess
-and you wanted to be like her.
-She was just a normal kid.
Yeah, just a normal kid whose parents happen to be millionaires.
The pride of St Hilda's? Esme has told me all about you.
You were in the same stream.
I...don't know what to say.
You see, darling, I do pay attention to what you say.
That's your car, Mother.
And you know, it is awfully good of you to help her with her coursework.
I mean, I would do so myself, but, well, I'm up to my eyes in work.
Turned out that I was being too trusting.
Because she was the one judging me.
That's why she wouldn't tell her mum where I really came from.
I didn't know what else to tell her.
No, you just didn't want to tell her that
I was some random girl from a care home.
-It's only a white lie, no-one got hurt.
-You hurt me!
So you could say that my real problem is
I am too keen to give everyone the benefit of the doubt.
Yeah, as long as you don't have to share a room with them.
Uh, Jody, that is not true and...
It's a balancing act.
You want to give new people a fair chance,
but you don't want to be taken for a ride.
And some people are better at making that kind of call than others.
Stop it, Tyler!
-Only if you let me join in.
Go and find Frank and ask him some questions about the
millions of times he has got the wrong end of the stick with people.
Even you can't mess that up.
Yes, ma'am, I won't let you down!
You are so not funny.
OK, Frank, what I want to know is how good do you think you are
at judging people's characters?
I'd say pretty good.
-No, you can't say that.
-But I am good at sizing people up.
You have to say you're not. I can't let Jody think I'm useless.
-Ha, not my problem.
-OK. What about that girl...Jen?
# Yeah, she did me wrong! #
Yeah, Rick told me all about her
and how she was able to wrap Frank round her little finger.
-This game's different.
-Yeah, and how is it different, Frank?
Jen has taught me a system.
-Who is Jen?
-She is really amazing.
She wins, like, every time.
Right, so she wins every single time,
why is she sharing the system with you?
Because she wants me and her to work together.
-What is she getting out of that?
-She likes me, OK?
But I guess you think that is just crazy.
Where were you? I was so worried about you.
This is Jen.
Have you got my money?
And I want a rematch.
Anyone can make a mistake.
And anyway, that was different.
In what way?
She was gorgeous.
I win, ha.
Come to papa!
Face it, she saw you coming and was totally manipulating you.
-A bit harsh!
-It's the truth.
And you know it.
You were dealing.
I've got no idea where that's come from.
You cheated so your boyfriend could win.
No, look, it was my idea, Frank had nothing to do with it.
You must think we're stupid. I want every penny you ever won off us.
-CRYING: This is all I have.
Here, take this.
How could you let yourself be tricked like that?
Listen, she was good.
-Beautiful, just beautiful.
-I was almost scared for a moment.
-Cos you're a good actor.
Real tears and everything.
Anyway, what about Kaz? I got it right that time.
-Why do you care so much about Frank?
-I was sleeping in a shop doorway.
Frank would give me food. We would talk.
-Then he came to me in trouble, I had to help.
Meanwhile, everyone else was jumping to the wrong conclusion.
Whoa! What do you mean steal?
She does. She picks people's pockets when they're trying to help you.
Yeah. Sorry, mate, we all saw her.
People jump to conclusions for a reason.
-A lot of what she was up to didn't exactly look good.
-Yeah, I suppose.
You know what, you should ask Kaz all about this.
Will she have much to say?
You'd be surprised.
I can never get a word out of her.
She's got loads to say if you go about it the right way.
Well, there's no harm in trying.
Hey, Kaz, it's really wrong to judge people, don't you think?
Yeah, I suppose so.
Like you, I bet you're not really as weird as you actually come across.
All right, put it another way, do you think people misjudge you?
-I think people underestimate me. But that's a good thing.
-How can that be good?
-Because it gives me the element of surprise.
Every time you want to play a shot,
you just have to hit the white ball first.
-White ball first.
Wait, no, look.
Hold it round this way. See?
Right, now you try.
Exactly. But you're getting there.
No-one really knows me and what I can do, and that suits me fine.
I prefer to play like this.
And like this.
Kaz certainly had you lot fooled.
Although, that's not exactly difficult.
Be careful what you say.
Don't forget, I do have hidden camera magic and I'm not afraid to use it.
-Are you blackmailing me?
-No. Would I do something so underhand as that?
Yes. Yes, you would.
All I'm saying is, if you don't want this hilarious footage of you
to fall into the wrong hands, then just keep me sweet.
So what have we learned
so far about second chances to upload into the Survival Files?
Well, sometimes we all mess up.
Yeah, and that's when we need other people to be big enough to see
behind their first impressions and give you a second chance.
Like Carmen did with you, hey, Jody?
I'll admit that sometimes first impressions can be deceptive.
You can easily get the wrong end of the stick about people
if you're not careful.
Yeah, so it often turns out that people can be too quick to
judge somebody, even though
they haven't done anything that bad in the first place.
Of course, though,
it could always turn out that your first impression was right.
So for example, a boy who seems to be annoying,
unfunny and always exactly where you don't want him to be
might really turn out to be all of those things.
-Hang on, are you talking about me?
-Now, what gave you that impression?
Of course, there is one person you'll meet here whose speciality is
making a bad impression on people.
-What, worse than you?
Go on, Jody, now.
-Get past her, Trevor.
I don't care what your name is.
Maybe if you lost a bit of way, you'd move a bit faster.
-That's not nice.
-Neither is losing.
Bailey had only been here five minutes
and he had already rubbed everyone up the wrong way.
You have got Frank's old room.
If you don't like it, you are allowed to paint it.
Who asked you, ginger nut?
I can tell if I like someone or not in five seconds.
And I am never wrong.
The social worker said I am only going to be here for a night.
Good, cos I thought I liked you, but I don't.
And trust me, you do not want to get on Floss's bedside.
Who do you want to play for?
Barcelona probably would offer me the most,
but I wouldn't turn Liverpool down either.
I'd rather play with Man U.
I thought you looked like a loser.
What? Fail-y Wharton?
I tell you what, the second I clapped eyes on that idiot,
I knew he was an idiot.
And all of the idiotic things he has done
since then have just not changed my mind about that.
He is an idiot. A total idiot.
So, let me get this straight, you think Bailey is an idiot?
I just said that, didn't I?
-Well, sometimes in life you have to make allowances for people.
Even if they are being obnoxious?
Tyler, you know as well as anybody that when people turn up here,
they have usually been through a lot.
-Come back here!
-I had it covered.
Giving you a bit of work out, was he?
I thought he needed the exercise.
So I'm guessing Bailey must've been a bit of a challenge
when he first arrived.
Kids like Bailey are why I do this job.
Besides, I've been in this game long enough not to let
the likes of Bailey Wharton knock me off my stride.
Hi, you must be Bailey.
You look like you need a bit of work out yourself.
He knows which buttons to push, though, doesn't he?
I haven't put on weight, have I?
Cut him some slack, it is a big day for him today.
-Maybe he's a bit nervous.
-I don't do nervous.
I'm taking my team to victory. I am going to be a hero.
No-one is going to think you are hero in a top like that, are they?
Bailey doesn't mean any harm, he's just one of those people.
The ones that people think do mean harm, but they don't mean harm.
No, you've lost me.
People think that Bailey means harm, but he doesn't mean any harm.
But because people think he does mean harm,
he ends up doing the kind of harm that he doesn't mean to do.
My head hurts, cut.
Point that camera at me and you're dead.
Is that a Man U shirt he's got on?
Yeah, he has to wear it all morning cos he lost a bet.
Yeah, he was knocking rugby players, so we bet him
he couldn't score penalties with a rugby ball.
Don't let Johnny know I said this cos he's, like, Bailey's
sworn worst enemy,
but we could have tried harder to help Bailey fit in.
Take a picture of me, Lily! Me versus Bailey.
-Don't you dare!
-In a Man U shirt. There's one for Frank.
The problem is, once everyone else has the wrong idea about you,
it's like a downward spiral.
Bailey got off on the wrong foot.
Yeah, by being a complete pain to everyone, trashing the place.
I'm sure it was an accident.
Something to say, Tee?
I'll say it.
He kicked the ball right at her.
-I'm not grassing, it's just true.
Everyone was way too quick to judge him.
That's not fair, I really tried to make him welcome.
So, your idea of making someone feel welcome
is putting their football boots for sale on the internet?
Yeah. That was a...a misunderstanding.
That's where they are! We've got bids coming in.
-Shut up, Tyler, is that really all you care about?
-I came up with the idea first.
-Yeah, and we're at eight quid now.
-We love you, Bailey! We do! We love you, Bailey.
-You two are pathetic!
It didn't take long before we worked out why he was behaving like that.
-Yeah, the reason is he is a nightmare.
-No. Because of his dad.
Nothing happens without a reason behind it.
# I'm my father's son... #
It's hardly surprising Bailey didn't know how to make friends.
His dad hadn't exactly been much use teaching him
how to get on with the people.
All he ever did was promise the earth and then run out on him.
That's how Bailey ended up here in the first place.
'You're through to Jimmy Wharton's phone.
'I'm not here right now, so leave a message.'
Yeah, Dad, it's me again.
Did you get the message?
You know where I am, right? You are coming to get me, aren't you?
PHONE CLICKS OFF
-Are we expecting someone?
-It's the ice cream man!
Hey, that's my dad!
But when Bailey's dad turned up out of the blue,
I'd never seen him so excited.
HE HONKS THE HORN
Dad, stop it. Get off!
-Where have you been?
I've been ringing and ringing.
-You missed my Cup Final game.
-I've been on some business.
It took longer than I thought.
-I didn't play.
Mr Wharton, Michael Milligan, head care worker.
If you're the governor, how come you didn't take my boy
-to his match?
It wasn't his job! It was you that did a bunk and left him!
Where have you been?!
-I'm here now.
-You can't turn up acting all innocent,
acting like you never did anything wrong!
-Is she a mate of yours?
Go get your things, bud.
Your son has been placed on an emergency care order.
You are not taking him anywhere.
He's my dad.
You can't stop him.
I'm afraid we can.
We are legally in charge of you now.
But for people like Bailey's dad,
little details like emergency care orders don't mean anything.
-There you are. I tried every flipping window.
Come on, then, if we are going.
We are leaving?
That dad of his!
The minute I saw him, I knew he was bad news.
Maybe you shouldn't have been so quick to judge
-and taken the time to find out why he was like that.
I thought so.
The point is, we needed to help Bailey.
Not that anyone here was that bothered.
-Will the police find him, though?
-Probably. Stop quizzing me.
Bailey never even wanted to be here anyway.
And he's with his dad, not some randomer.
Yeah, for a few weeks. Until his dad leaves him on his own again.
Yeah, well, he knows who to call this time, doesn't he?
What if he can't?
What if he's locked in his bedroom as a punishment for causing
all this trouble for his dad? Like my brother did to me.
Yeah, but the difference was, Jody, your brother was really mean.
And Bailey's dad could be worse, except no-one seems to care!
I seem to remember that my natural sense of fairness and compassion
meant that I was right by your side.
Do me a favour. You were one of the worst.
-I don't know why you are so fussed.
-Then you are dumb too.
You are just stupid and selfish.
-You just feel bad cos you never liked him either.
None of us did.
-He didn't even try to fit in.
-So that means we don't help him?
He's just a kid. All he's got is his dad, he doesn't know any different.
-So how do you think he feels being dumped here with
a load of strangers?
Well, he didn't have to be so annoying.
He was just finding his feet. How many of you settled in straightaway?
Faith got it.
The truth was that behind the big man front,
Bailey was just a kid who had been let down by his dad.
And however badly he kept being let down,
Bailey kept giving his dad chance after chance after chance.
We need to get a move on. The game has already started.
Can we do this every week, Dad?
Of course we can. You're with your old man. What else is there in life?
You see, that is what your Mike fellow don't understand.
You won't have to go away, then? Your business trips.
-Cos I always get into trouble, Dad.
-Don't worry about it, OK?
You are my top priority, you know that. Nothing else comes close.
Bailey, can we talk about what happened
with your dad at the football match?
-How about we don't.
I suppose it is not a great memory.
I shouldn't have asked, should I?
No, that's all right.
It's no biggie.
It's that I really thought he'd changed.
Gets me every time.
Every time, I think it is going to be different.
Come on, we need to sneak these past the gate.
Do you have to?
I don't want you getting caught.
We are having a laugh.
You distract him, yeah?
I just so wanted it to be all right.
Just once, you know?
Like that ever happens.
Get your hands off me!
I never touched your stupid pitch.
The can fell out of my hand.
Leave quietly now or you make it worse for yourself.
You flipping leave, I'm supporting my team.
-What's your problem?
-Hey, Mr Wharton.
Been stirring it, have they? Trying to pin stuff on me.
Don't believe a word.
Ask Bailey, he kidnapped him from our kids' zone.
You should be arresting him!
Is that right, Son?
No. That kid has got her wires crossed.
I've never seen this little squirt before in my life.
Hey, you all right?
He does love me, you know?
Course he does.
Is that why you were so angry when you got here?
Cos you felt let down by your dad?
No. It was cos you are all losers and I couldn't believe
I was stuck here.
So let me get this straight,
you'll give Bailey, like, a million second chances,
but it is different for me?
All you have to do is hand over the embarrassing stuff you filmed.
It breaks my heart, but here's your evidence, officer.
You know it makes sense.
So, what have we learned about second chances to
upload into The Dumping Ground Survival Files?
-Everybody deserves a second chance sometimes.
You've certainly changed your tune.
Yeah, sure. We all make mistakes.
So if you would like others to give you a second chance sometimes,
it is important to do the same if the boot is on the other foot.
It is certainly true that sometimes appearances can be deceptive.
You can't tell everything about someone at first sight.
So you might need to leave yourself some room to
change your mind about somebody and give them a second chance.
That's what Jody did with me.
She saw I deserved a second chance and let me join in with the blog.
More like you were giving me a headache and I thought if I let
you help, you might stop getting on my nerves for a second or two.
The thing to remember is,
if you are unsure whether to give someone a second chance,
it might be that there is loads going on in the background
that you don't know about which can explain why somebody behaves
the way that they do.
That's all you need to know about second chances uploaded
into The Dumping Grounds Survival Files.
And don't forget...
We went through all this...
So that you don't have to.
# Give me one more chance
# One more chance Just give me one more
# One more
# One more, one more chance
# Give me one more chance One more chance to... #
And now, what we have all been waiting for... The bloopers real.
I hope you don't mean that you...
Did you really think I was going to give away comedy gold
without making a copy?
# Rah-rah-ah-ah-ah-ah Rama-ramama-ah... #
-Never mind me. Keep on giving it, Gaga.
-Give it to me.
-Are you mad? This is hidden camera magic!
-Give me that!
-Not until you rethink about letting me be in this blog.
-I think you will.
-Not happening! End of story!
Give me it, Tyler! Give me the camera! Tyler, it's mine!
# Want your bad romance. #
The Dumping Ground gang make video blogs as a helpful guide for new arrivals. Jody's topic for her video blog is when to give people second chances. But will she give Tyler the chance to help?
